Groningen General Information

The dominant municipality in the north of the Netherlands is a vibrant cultural hub and university city of close to 190,000 people. Over one-quarter of Groningen’s populace is made up of college students, most notably at the historic and venerable University of Groningen, and, as a result, the small city is a vital node in the country. Indeed, above and beyond the inherent dominance of Amsterdam as a popular tourist destination, the allure of the Netherlands pivots in no small part on places like Groningen.

Close to the North Sea and Germany (Bremen is 180 km away), the city has a vastly different vibe from other Dutch towns like Eindhoven or Maastrich, to name just two. There is a sense of exclusive regional charm in Groningen, though the presence of the university stirs it up a little, with students from all over the Netherlands and indeed, the world. Important points of interest to consider in this attractive Hondsrug town include the pre-eminent Groninger Museum, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen campus, Grote Markt and incredible Der Aa-kerk church. Groningen’s fame as a showcase for arts and culture stands on the shoulders of events like the Eurosonic Festival. Visitors should also make a point to explore the city’s solid network of restaurants, cafés and clubs.
